Altarea wants to be a public interest partner for cities. The Group is developing high-quality property solutions for a denser, smarter, more diversiﬁed and friendlier city which creates jobs and drives economic development with a low environmental footprint.
In 2020, the Group's results demonstrate its commitment: maintaining activities and supporting employment, pursuing the emission reduction objectives of CO₂ and the "useful nature" approach.
Lifestyles, behaviours, aspirations… customer expectations are changing and, across all of its activities, the Group engages in dialogue and listens: customer satisfaction is the Group’s top priority and it is also achieved through quality of life and well-being in its projects which, in addition, boost their long-term economic value.
